Coral Castle

CORAL CASTLE, Top ranked by TripAdvisor / Yelp! Top 10 Historic Hot Spot / Museum in S. Florida.

Mystique, intrigue, and romance can be unearthed at this stone structure deemed ‘Coral Castle’.Comprised of numerous megalithic stones, Coral Castle was built by the eccentric Edward Leedskalnin to serve as a monument that would express an undying love for Agnes Scuffs. Agnes cancelled their wedding just one day before the ceremony was to take place, leaving Edward alone and heartbroken. Driven by his devastation, Edward single-handedly carved and sculpted over 1,100 tons of coral rock. Laboring from 1923 until 1951, this 5-foot, 110-pound man managed to move and arrange huge coral blocks using only hand tools. Each section of coral wall is approximately 8 feet tall, 4 feet wide, 3 feet thick, and weighs over 58 tons!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This is a small place very reasonably priced. We loved it for the wonder of it all. This little man created all of this and its just really facsinating. I wouldn't make a day of this, but we doubled this up with the Metro Zoo and it was absolutely a PERFECT day. I can't imagine somebody not being facsinated by this. It was just a quaint - fun thing to do - and I'd do it again if we're ever down that way.
